Perfect British cozy mystery
5 stars By Katie Donovan, Mar 28 2016
Drew is the quintessential English gentleman, both in manner and situation, and I love the understated way in which Julianna Deering portrays his wit and charm. I also love that we are continuing with Drew and Madeline beyond their marriage and that Deering portrays their affection and regard for one another with a subtlety that eschews cheesy displays of affection.  The opening of the book is light-hearted as Drew and Madeline arrive at Winteroak House for a Regency-themed house party. Julianna Deering captures the atmosphere of the house party perfectly, and uses this time to draw attention to the underlying tensions. After the murder occurs, the novel begins to take on a more sombre tone. Drew is shocked by the arrest that takes place immediately following the murder, and when a second death occurs he begins to question whether he is doing more harm than good in his role as amateur detective. But the snide Inspector from Scotland Yard is more concerned with closing in on a drug smuggling ring than he is with the deaths that have occurred, and Chief Inspector Birdsong isn't convinced the second death is a murder at all. Finding out what really happened is the least Drew can do under the circumstances, but a fistful of airtight alibis and a few obscure, and possibly meaningless anomalies, doesn't give him much to go on. Julianna Deering gets the mood, the language - everything, in fact - just right.
